The 2013 American post-apocalyptic science fiction movie Oblivion.

What is it about?

Here is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the visionary director of TRON: Legacy and producers of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.

2077: Jack Harper (Cruise) serves as a security repairmen stationed on an evacuated Earth.

Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying alien threat who still scavenges what’s left of our planet, Jack’s mission is almost complete.

In a matter of two weeks, he will join the remaining survivors on a lunar colony far from the war-torn world he has long called home.

Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, Jack’s soaring existence is brought crashing down after he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft.

Drawn to Jack through a connection that transcends logic, her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he thought he knew.

With a reality that is shattered as he discovers shocking truths that connect him to Earth of the past, Jack will be pushed to a heroism he didn’t know he contained within.

The fate of humanity now rests solely in the hands of a man who believed our world was soon to be lost forever.

Final Thoughts

I saw this movie at the C movie theater several years ago in the city of LC, I liked the visuals and the Sky Tower (which was beautiful and I wish that I could visit and live in it in the real world) and Andrea Riseborough’s performance as the character Victoria “Vika” Olsen (who I wish would have been in the movie more) and the end credits song Oblivion by M83 featuring Susanne Sundfør (which went almost perfectly with the end of the movie, and I actually stayed in my seat to listen to it and watch the end credits; and this song and the end credits either magnified the feelings that I felt toward the movie and / or it created new ones), but there were some things that I did not like about this movie which I will not mention to avoid spoilers.

I still liked this movie better than some people did, but I have only seen it once several years ago.

The end,
